4-H projects are the educational experiences that youth who are members of 4-H participate in. 4-H members can also participate in self-directed projects which are not listed as long as they meet the requirements for a project. For more information and a list of 4-H projects, you may visit this website: http://texas4-h.tamu.edu/projects
The 4-H slogan is “Learning by Doing.” 4-H members complete learning experiences called 4-H projects. A project is an area of interest that the 4-H member wants to learn more about. The project consists of at least six learning experiences and provides in-depth learning experiences for the member. A 4-H member may participate in one or more projects each year.
Project pins are presented to Gillespie County 4-H members annually during the Awards Banquet in July. To be eligible for a project pin, members must submit a completed project record form. Only one pin is awarded each year. If more than one project is completed, the 4-Her will have to choose which pin he/she wants. The project record forms are generally due at the beginning of May.
